Publisher's Summary

In this next searing tale of the Immortals After Dark series, number-one New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole delves deeper into the mysterious Clan MacRieve, a family tormented by ancient agonies and forbidden wolven hungers.

Uilleam MacRieve, a centuries-old Lykae warrior, was captured, caged, and experimented on by a shadowy human order, along with other immortals. During a prison break that devolved into one of the bloodiest massacres in recent history, he escapes. But the aftermath of his unspeakable torture preys on his damaged mind, while the wolf inside him roars for vengeance and carnage. In the days leading up to the full moon, can MacRieve rein in his beast, even when he encounters his mate - a vexingly impossible female unlike anything he'd ever dreamed for himself?

One hell of a hot Scott

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Hell yes !!! This is my favourite in the IAD series so far.

What did you like best about this story?

MacRieve is a poor tortured wolf from the ghosts of his past actions & with a battered heart tries to overcome his prejudices to claim the woman he loves.
The wolves in the IAD are so cheeky & funny, not just Ulliem but his twin & the young pups.

Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favourite?

Uilleam MacRieve. Robert Petkoff does a great Scottish accent.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

MacRieve's heartbreak trying to come to terms with who / what his mate is while reconciling the abuse of his past.

Any additional comments?

A very funny & sad addition to the IAD series.

no.

Not my kind of book. Contains sexual abuse of a child, gas lighting and slut shaming. it contained way to many negative sex scenes. The dirty talk was really boring and cliched.
On the up side, the trash talk was amusing.

The Narrator is ok and actually does a good job of voicing the female character.

Hauntingly beautiful

Uilleam Macrieve and Chloe Todd's story is heart wrenchingly sad. Because of Macrieve's horrendous past experienced with a succubus, he hates their species and kill as many succubus as he can. That sad experienced shape him and than fate dish him another blow by giving him a half human half succubus fated mate, even if Chloe is innocent Uilleam can't get past his hatred to that species so he treated Chloe badly. Robert Petkoff is the bomb in his sexy scottish accent, wow he gives me goosebumps listening to his thick brogue (sighs) thanks Kresley and Robert for another Brilliant book xx

AUTOMATIC DOWNLOAD!

Yep, Hot and Hotter expresses it best! Hot leading Wolf, intricate plot, strong leading lady. The plot was FANTASTIC! The kind when you say, "Dang, I didn't see that coming."
I liked the beginning, middle, and end. Waiting for the next twins story!

And just like someone else said, "Thank God for road trips!" Got to listen in one gulp!

Still the reigning Queen of the Lore!

No surprise here...when it comes to Kresley Cole you will never be disappointment! The Immortals after Dark series paired with brilliant narration of Robert Petkoff is pure perfection. In this IAD installment its the lykae twin Uilleam Macrieve runs into his fated female with a nudge from Nix and a line of unfortunate events of course. Uilleam is completely happy to have found his Chloe until she turns immortal that throws a huge wrench in Macrieve's feeling for her. This book was more emotional and heart wrenching then her other ones and a lot little twist in it....just brilliant!
I absolutely love it when a Kresley Cole book comes out and then I am totally bummed when I finish it. Kresley Cole definitely has the magic touch when it comes to paranormal romances, even her young adult books are completely awesome. I can honestly say I have never finished a Kresley Cole book and was like " well that sucked" or "how disappointing". She is hands down my favorite author and Robert Petkoff is my favorite narrator! ( I wish I could get a personalized ring tone for my cell in his Scottish accent....hhhmmm hotness! )

Any and all of Kresley Cole books are always credit worthy.

Love the Lykae in this series

Ulieam "William" MacRieve had been trying to outrun painful events in his past that cost him his parents. Along with his twin Munro, Will had finally began muddling his way through until he scents his mate Chloe. Chloe Todd is the daughter of General Webb, the most hated enemy of the Lore, as the general leads THE ORDER. Webb had totrured William, and now fate has dealt him this rough hand.

It's hard explaining further without giving away part of the plait. But I enjoy this series and how Nix continues to maneuver or manipulate everyone like pieces on her personal chess board. I also liked how both characters had to work to develop trust even though the attraction was definitely there in spades. I am amazed at how Kresley Cole continues to keep the story fresh even though the timeline coincidences with other HEAs in this series. I have found that lykae and demons are my favorite heroes in this series, with Lothaire being the exception as his book blew me away. I can't wait for Dark Skye.

Stunning, Beautiful, Heartbreaking, & Mindblowing

Would you listen to Macrieve again? Why?

ABSOLUTELY! Robert does an AMAZING job bringing life to these characters. Not only that, his voice and well developed acting ability make every scene alive and vivid.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Will. His history is heartbreaking, his life was dark, stark, and filled with grief and guilt, but he had such immense strength (physical, mental, and emotional), such deep love, and such a wonderful sense of humor that Chloe couldn't help but fall in love with him.

Which scene was your favorite?

Oh, hard to choose, although any scene in which his is talking dirty kind of made me smile, lol.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did. Thank God for road trips.

Any additional comments?

This is, by far, my favorite of the IAD series. Kresely, you've outdone yourself with this one. Bravo!

Will Macrieve is hotter than hot

Macrieve has been on my pre-order list for awhile now and I can happily say it did not disappoint. I love the Macrieve Lykae Clan and I've anxiously been waiting for a story about either Will or Munro. (The super hot twin warriors)

This one is about Will and it will absolutely melt your heart. Chloe (his mate) is a good match for him and the scenes between these two are intense and toe-curling. As in all of the IAD books there is perfect mix of action and romance. I don't know how Kresley Cole manages to keep her series so fresh and entertaining but somehow she pulls it off brilliantly.

I can't wait for Munro's story next. And I always look forward to more Nix!

Wow Those Scotts Wolfmen

What made the experience of listening to Macrieve the most enjoyable?

The humor, but you have to listen for it or miss it. Our hero has such good humor when he uses it.

What other book might you compare Macrieve to and why?

Book 1 and book 4, the best use of reader's Scott's voice.

What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

he is just such a talented reader. The author is so good and R. Petkoff has picked up the rhythm of the author. #1 does not have the best rhythm. I started w/ book 5,6,4, then 1. If I
had started with #1, I probably would not have continued.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I liked the concern of the two brothers for each other.

Any additional comments?

Since this is book #13, it has all the good stuff from the author's experience of getting good reviews.

Great except for 'to be continued' ending

I've enjoyed this entire series and I've re-listened to all of them. I'm sure I'll re-listen to this one as well. While hugely enjoyable, Macrieve seemed not to have as much nail-biting tension as the previous releases--not as action packed perhaps. I was wondering if the author was distracted by her work on the new Poison Princess series. It's plenty satisfying nevertheless. As usual Robert Petkoff did an outstanding job with narration. He delivers the story exactly as how I'd hear it in my own head if I were actually reading the story. The conclusion was really the introduction to the next book in the series which really does nothing but annoy me because I want instant satisfaction! I want the next book now! Her previous releases wrapped things up more neatly, so I found that a bit disappointing. Kresley Cole sets the standard for paranormal romance. If paranormal romance with lots of action is what you're looking for, you've found the right author.

No Prince Charming Here!

Listening to the books in this series back to back, without the wait for each new release, has been both absorbing and tedious at times. On the one hand, I am completely enthralled with this series and having to wait for the next book might kill me. On the other hand, there are so many similarities between the books that they can begin to feel unoriginal and redundant.

That being said, this was not one of my favorites in the series. I liked the story of Uilleam, aka "Will", MacRieve and Chloe, but I didn't love it. I give it 3 1/2 stars rounded up, but I could have just as easily rounded this one down.

When Will first recognizes Chloe Todd as his mate, she's about to be auctioned off as a tool for revenge against her father. The daughter of Webb, one of The Order's highest ranking officials, Chloe has unwittingly become a pawn in the war between The Order and the supernatural beings of the lore. There is no shortage of beings that would like to torture Chloe in the same manner in which her father so cruelly tortured them. Will rescues Chloe from the unspeakable, risking his own life to snatch her from the grasp of the winning bidder.

During the days immediately following her rescue, Will is the perfect gentleman. He treats Chloe like a queen, doing his best to woo her and win her affections. I thought that Will was going to be a new favorite of mine at this point.

Then, when it turned out that "human" Chloe wasn't quite so human after all, Will turned into a complete ass. This is where things started to fall apart for me. As Chloe began her transition as a succubus, Will treated her as if she were an abomination. From one extreme to the next, he left my head spinning.

While I understood that he had suffered greatly at the hands of another succubus in his youth, that certainly had nothing to do with poor Chloe. Yet, he repeatedly made her pay for the wrongs of another. He turned from Prince Charming into an abusive, cruel bastard in the blink of an eye.

From that point forward, I couldn't really forgive Will. I pretty much wrote him off and there was oncoming back for him. As far as he was concerned, I was done. Put a fork in it!

Despite Will's lack of appeal, I did love Chloe and Will's brother, Munro. Too bad those two couldn't have been matched up. I would have been much happier if they had!

Chloe was a strong, sassy heroine. Even though she was stuck with Will the super-jerk, she didn't wallow around in misery or allow him to abuse her. She stood up for herself and gave as good as she got.

Throughout it all, Munro was the voice of reason. He provided Chloe with support and a safe haven when her own mate sought to harm her. He tried to make Will see the error of his ways, though his efforts were futile. He even intervened to protect Chloe from his brother. Munro was the real hero in this story if you ask me!

Overall, I enjoyed the story, but not in the way I'd expected. This time around, I found myself frustrated with the love story. It was the backstory and the supporting characters and relationships that salvaged this one for me. In the end, it was alright.

All Lykae stories in IAD suck

Not sure why but all the Lykae heroes in this series have been horrible, mean, prejudiced and undeserving. I really didn't enjoy this book, Macrieve was horrible to Chloe to a unjustifiable point, I mean he wasn't just insulting there was emotional abuse. I know he had a bad experience in the past but hey its not her fault! I actually was routing for them not to continue together after all the horrid things he did to her and found the ending to be total BS!

Only things that made me continue with this book was the heroine, Chloe and the way Petkoff reads Lykae characters (Hot!)

Amazing

If you could sum up Macrieve in three words, what would they be?

Dark, dangerous and hot

What was one of the most memorable moments of Macrieve?

The most memorable moment, in my opinion was the scene where he was burning down the cottage in the woods and Chloe found him. The way he opened himself up, allowed himself to be completely vulnerable and showed his emotions made my heart break and speed up at the same time lol.

Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've never heard anything read by Robert Petkoff before but after listening to him read Macrieve.....wow, I'll definitely be listening to more of his audio readings. He made me shiver with his gorgeous scots accent. It sounded completely natural. ( And as a scot myself, I've heard a few attempts that just don't pass muster!!!!) Needless to say ill be buying the rest of Kresley Cole's Immortals after dark to hear him read.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes..couldn't concentrate on my work!!! Couldn't wait to get home and listen to more!

Any additional comments?

I would definitely recommend this audio both for the story and the narrator. I'm so glad I found it! Will certainly be one of my favourites.

Excellent!!!

What made the experience of listening to Macrieve the most enjoyable?

Robert Petkoff is just a brilliant narrator, his mastery of different accents and individual voices is just amazing and he actually sounds like he is enjoying the book as well!!

What did you like best about this story?

Very imaginative, excellent description of people and places but not too much.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh very definitely!

Any additional comments?

I love Kresley Cole books I have them all and decided to try the audio version. I enjoyed this more than reading out of a book.

Awesome

Loved this book. It's in my top five of the IAD series. Uilleam, the hero is a Lykae with a tortured past and I just loved him. Chloe, the heroine was spunky and I loved their relationship. At times the hero was a right douche, but knowing what he'd been through made it forgivable. Chloe was a strong heroine who took no crap and stood up for herself. The humour had me in stitches in parts. Malcolm Slaine also makes an appearance and since he's my number one favourite hero of this series, that made it even better for me.

As always Robert Petkoff was incredible. I love all the character voices he does but the Lykae ones are just amazing. Love a Scottish accent. He's without a doubt my favourite Audible narrator.

A Mixed Bag!

First the positives; the narration by Robert Petkoff is a joy. He really captures the voice of the author and the intonation of the characters. He's one of the best narrators I've heard.
The characters are likeable with a funny and feisty Chloe and a gorgeous hunk of lychae in Will.
The problem is, as others have suggested, there isn't much action going on except of the 'bedroom kind' (euphemism!) and it feels like that has been substituted for plot.
Also not enough Valkyries - you can never have enough of them.
Overall, ok if you want to follow the overarching series plot but it's not on my read again list.

Possibly my fav of this series

I've not listened/read all of the series or even read them in the right order but i think this was the best I've heard so far. I think it might be good to listen in order but in my opinion it's not necessary. I really love the narrator except every time he said arse it sounded weird, that really is the best complaint I can come up with regarding him :-P I liked the characters and the story and found myself empathising and wanting them to be happy, wasn't overly predictable unlike many romances all in all worth a credit.
